Mulini medioevali

The Bestina River rises near Serre di Rapolano and runs for about 7 kilometers, ending near the suburb of Camparboli in Asciano, where it joins with the Copra creek. The Bestina's continuous flow at variable levels and the considerable descent from its source to its mouth have allowed it to serve 12 mills for grain and metal processing. Along the course of the river are the remains of many hydraulic works: dams, channels and reservoirs, all designed for the best use of the hydraulic energy.
